Hananiah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. One of the singer Heman's 14 sons; chief of the 16th of the 24 courses into which the 288 Levite musicians were divided by king David; employed chiefly to "lift up the horn" (1 Chronicles 25:4-5; 1 Chronicles 25:23). 2. 2 Chronicles 26:11. 3. Jeremiah 36:12. 4. Son of Azur, the prophet of Gibeon, a priests' city (Jeremiah 28). In the fourth year of Zedekiah's reign Hananiah, in opposition to Jeremiah, foretold that Jeconiah and the captives at Babylon would return with all the vessels of the Lord's house within two years. This hope rested on Pharaoh Hophra (Apries). Judah already had designed a league with Edom, Ammon, Moab, Tyre, and Sidon against Babylon. Their ambassadors had therefore come to Jerusalem, but were sent back with yokes and a divine message from Jeremiah that their several masters must submit to Nebuchadnezzar's yoke, to whom God had given these lands and the very beasts of the field, or else be punished with sword, famine, and pestilence (Jeremiah 27)...

Hananiah in Smiths Bible Dictionary (gift of God). 1. One of the fourteen sons of Heman, and chief of the sixteenth course of singers. 1Ch 25:4,5,23 (B.C. 1014.) 2. A general in the army of King Uzziah. 2Ch 26:11 3. Father of Zedekiah, in the reign of Jehoiakim. (B.C. before 605.) 4. Son of Azur, a Benjamite of Gibeon and a false prophet in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah. In the fourth year of his reign, B.C. 595, Hananiah withstood Jeremiah the prophet, and publicly prophesied in the temple that within two years Jeconiah and all his fellow captives with the vessels of the Lord's house, should be brought back to Jerusalem. Jer 28:1 ... Hananiah corroborated his prophecy by taking from off the neck of Jeremiah the yoke which he wore by divine command. Jer 27:1 ... and breaking it. But Jeremiah was bidden to go tell Hananiah that for the wooden yokes which he had broken he should make yokes of iron, so firm was the dominion of Babylon destined to he for seventy years. The prophet Jeremiah added to this rebuke the prediction of Hananiah's death, the fulfillment of which closes the history of this false prophet. 5.

Hananiah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE han-a-ni'-a (chananyahu, chananyah; Ananias; also with aspirate, "Yahweh hath been gracious"): This was a common name in Israel for many centuries. (1) A Benjamite (1 Ch 8:24). (2) A captain of Uzziah's army (2 Ch 26:11). (3) Father of one of the princes under Jehoiakim (Jer 36:12). (4) One of the sons of Heman and leader of the 16th division of David's musicians (1 Ch 25:4,23). (5) Grandfather of the officer of the guard which apprehended Jeremiah on a charge of desertion (Jer 37:13). (6) A false prophet of Gibeon, son of Azzur, who opposed Jeremiah, predicting that the yoke of Babylon would be broken in two years, and that the king, the people and the vessels of the temple would be brought back to Jerusalem. Jeremiah would be glad if it should be so, nevertheless it would not be. The question then arose, Which is right, Jeremiah or Hananiah? Jeremiah claimed that he was right because he was in accordance with all the great prophets of the past who prophesied evil and their words came true. Therefore his words are more likely to be true. The prophet of good, however, must wait to have his prophecy fulfilled before he can be accredited. Hananiah took off the yoke from Jeremiah and broke it in pieces, symbolic of the breaking of the power of Babylon. Jeremiah was seemingly beaten, retired and received a message from Yahweh that the bar of wood would become a bar of iron, and that Hananiah would die during the year because he had spoken rebellion against Yahweh (Jer 28 passim). (7) One of Daniel's companions in Babylon whose name was changed to Shadrach (Dan 1:7,11,19). (8) A son of Zerubbabel (1 Ch 3:19,21). (9) A Levite, one of the sons of Bebai, one of those who married foreign wives (Ezr 10:28; 1 Esdras 9:29). (10) One of the perfumers (the King James Version "apothecaries") who wrought in rebuilding the wall under Nehemiah (Neh 3:8). (11) One who helped to repair the wall above the horse gate (Neh 3:30). This may be the same person as number 10. (12) A governor of the castle, i.e. the birah or fortress, and by Nehemiah placed in charge of the whole city of Jerusalem, because "he was a faithful man, and feared God above many" (Neh 7:2). (13) One of those who sealed the covenant under Nehemiah (Neh 10:23); a Levite. (14) A priest who was present at the dedication of the walls of Jerusalem (Neh 12:12,41). J. J. Reeve
